    Out of the box hardware problems I had with my old pre order 950xl are gone :)

    1) No camera rattle when touching the screen - Yes!!! thank god
    2) Screen needs no colour adjustment - Old one as very warm with bad viewing angles
    3) No creaking case (yet) - This might be because I was mega careful popping it off this time

    Oh and one more thing :)

    4) The corners of my glass screen are not bent downwards slightly meaning I might be able to get a screen protector to stick :)

    That's great to hear. I have mine ordered from Carphone Warehouse in the UK with an estimated delivery of 19th January. It's painful to have to wait that long but its nice to see that potentially the new batches have been updated. Seems like updates are improving most issues too, can't wait to get my hands on it!

    How did you get your Lumia replaced? The back cover of my 950xl is creaking and doesn't fit the camera well. Thinking about having it replaced, but the stock is really low here in US.

    Really? You can definitely have it replaced for free!!! I think you can still return your old one within 30 days of purchase.
    So how long did it take to get a new one? And where did you get this new one?

    did you buy another one or get replacement from Microsoft? I bought one from Microsoft store online. it is dual sim version. I tried it a week and noticed when the phone power off, the 3 navigation key on bottom light up, and phone get warm, next time power on the battery dropped a lot. I tried all kinds of thing but no fix. I contacted technical support and they said the phone is currently out of stock, only option is to return it.

    I don't know if all the units are same or it happen to some units.

    Any user experienced this problem? does single version unit have this problem?

    Check if the iris scanner is on (a red light at the left top).

    There is no red light on.

    Did you enable iris scan? Just do hard reset button combo or use device recovery tool.

    I did soft reset and hard reset using button combo. still no fix. I tried device recovery tool, when it get to flashing mode, the phone keep restart, cannot get into flashing mode.

    I returned mine too. The phone will be available by end of January. I think this problem mostly happen to the dual sim version sold from Microsoft store. any users seen this problem with single sim version?

    Mine is dual sim and no issues. Hardware rev is newer, but also firmware is newer at 15454 vs. some people running 15452. Then there's the new 15506 firmware. I think MS has pushed back availability on amazon and other places to provide amazon with units already running latest firmware.

    Did you receive firmware update? when I got the phone there was new firmware came out but has not come to US yet don't know what date it will come to US. Update did not indicate would fix the hardware problem. so MS advice users having hardware problem return the handsets.
